Xavier University Pedestrian Art Mall & Gallery


New Orleans, Louisiana


Xavier University

Completion Date

Summer 2016

The Pedestrian Art Mall at Xavier University reorganizes the historic core of the campus along a central pedestrian walkway, and includes small plazas, seating areas, and landscaping to enhance the student experience. The walkway will eventually be lined with sculptures from Xavier’s extensive collection of African-American art, and occasionally highlight work from its student art programs. A modern indoor art gallery was created inside the historic Administration Building to showcase a revolving collection of visiting and student works. A new campus gateway on Drexel Drive was constructed to mark the main entrance to campus, and act as a beacon to the surrounding neighborhood.
